Ways to Naturally Relieve Scoliosis Discomfort

Hi my favorite readers! Having lived with scoliosis (curvature of the spine) for over 35 years, I have found there are a number of ways to naturally ease the discomfort level without taking prescription pain killers. Hopefully, you will find some of these useful for your situation. They range from physical activity, stretching, to meditation.

Physical activity.
Any activity that involves excessive jostling of the spinal column is a no go. Any activity that involves excessive pressure or stress on my spinal column does not work well with me. Hence, no jet skiing. I found that out the hard way. That activity involves way too much vertical spinal movement with hard landings for me to be comfortable. The same can be said about horseback riding.

* Swimming is an excellent physical activity to engage in to ease scoliosis discomfort. The water’s natural buoyancy supports body weight, taking pressure off the spinal column and joints. Some of my favorite exercises include:
· lifting my knee to my chest,
· holding onto the pool side while pulling my legs in, and
· simply using the water as a resistance against my legs.

* Stationary rowing is another good physical activity to engage in since it strengthens my back and upper body muscles. Movable rowing allows me to stretch my back, which helps my scoliosis. The same goes for snowshoeing.

* Stationary bicycling helps my lower back and scoliosis. I feel the stretch in my glutes and lower back. It’s not fun, but it works.

* As far as calisthenics go, I sometimes use ankle weights. I simply lay flat and do leg lifts. My leg lifts are to the side and straight up. I can feel my lower back muscles working. I know that helps my scoliosis. This exercise is also marvelous when done standing up in the water.

Stretching is fantastic for improving flexibility, hindering muscle stiffness and reducing pain. This provides an immeasurable benefit. Some of the stretching exercises that work will for me are the following:

* Lay on my back and lift my legs to my chest. I grab my knees and pull them forward until I feel the stretch in my lower back. This feels remarkably wonderful.
Laying on my side and bringing my leg forward to my chest. Again, I do this until I feel my lower back stretch.

* Lay on my back, and put my arms out sideways at shoulder length. I grab onto something to use as a foundation (like table legs, or bed sides). Then, I bring my knees to my chest. I then rock my legs side to side by holding my upper torso still. I do this until I feel a strong stretch as my lower back loosens up. Sometimes, for an extra stretch, I straighten my legs while on one side. This works great in easing any scoliosis discomfort. In fact, this is my personal favorite.

* Tai Chai provides me with a variety of stretching positions to ease my scoliosis discomfort. One particular movement involves clasping both hands and moving them overhead. Then, turn the upper torso to the right, bend to the right, and hold for a few seconds. Move back to center, and then turn to the left. The lower back stretch is wonderful from this movement.

* Another Tai Chi movement involves simply holding a ‘pretend’ ball in front of me- one hand above the other. Then, I bend to the waist level. The next movement involves keeping the bend while moving it to the right side. Same goes for the left. This move can also be done with an exercise ball. Tai Chai is a simple, yet powerful way to stretch out muscles.

* Speaking of exercise balls, these are fantastic for all-body stretches. I find that laying face down and then face up on one does wonders for alleviating my scoliosis discomfort. Laying face up with the ball across the center portion of my spine works equally as well. The stretch can be enhanced by raising arms overhead.

* Doing a simple toe-touching maneuver helps. By slightly bending my knees, I can slowly bend forward until my palms reach the floor. Holding this position until I feel my back muscles loosen greatly helps.

Finally, meditating every day for a bit is a great way to calm the mind while also loosening the muscles.

This article only contains suggestions based on my personal experience in alleviating my scoliosis discomfort. They may not work for you. I will not be held responsible for any negative consequences resulting from someone following my suggestions.
